Veterans Engaged in Art Therapy Invited to Submit Work for Upcoming Exhibition at Shorelline Community College


Puget Sound area veterans engaged in art therapy are encouraged to submit entries for the upcoming “Painting Away the Trauma” Art Exhibit presented by Washington AmeriCorps Vet Corps and Shoreline Community College on Wednesday, March 16. Free and open to the public, the event is hosted by Shoreline Community College’s Veterans and Military Student Services (VMSS) and will be held at the college’s Pagoda Union Building (PUB, Building 9000) from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. .

The event will showcase the talents of veterans who will exhibit their paintings, sculptures and metalwork. Veterans engaged in art therapy are invited to submit nominations. There is no entry fee and artists can email for registration and submission information.

Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to speak directly with veterans about the relationship between art therapy, mental health care and post-trauma healing.

“Recent combat veterans returning home from active duty, including conflicts in the Middle East, have found that art therapy helps them deal with their traumas,” said Shoreline CC Vet Corps Navigator Morgan Davis. . “These programs have provided avenues for many veterans to express themselves through an artistic process.”
